The month of May be the best month to visit Playa, other than the fact the weather is just starting to get nice up north. May is still the dry season, so just short spotty showers if any rain at all. it will be hot and humid, but usually a nice breeze off the ocean. May is the beginning of the off season so prices are usually better, and it's a little less crowded, but still a good vibe. June goes back to high season because Mexican schools are out and a lot of Mexicans from inland will come to Playa to vacation.

Coco Bongos is located at 12 calle and 10th avenue, one block from the heart of Playa del Carmen. From Coco Bongos if you head toward the beach, about 3 blocks you will find another 12 night clubs. None of these get started until 11:00 PM.

Sr Frogs is located near the main ferry dock to Cozumel, and it's not on my radar screen. Depending on what you want to do there are far better options than Sr Frogs.
